Andy Granatelli did some unusual things to stay competitve. The Ferguson is show here with the left side tires converted to white walls on race day. When asked why, Andy said that this made it possible to pick the car out as it exited turn 4 and came down the main stretch toward the pit. Another, characteristically Andy trick was to start the Novi engines before the other teams started theirs. Listen to the start of the 1963 race. Tony Hulman only gets out one word of the
"Gentlemen, start your engines," before you hear the high pitched wail of the Novi engines. Andy later explained that this way he did not have to be uncertain whether his engines had caught and straining to hear their note over the din of all 33 engines starting.
